HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Gov.-elect Tom Wolf's inaugural bash will be all about Pennsylvania.

Organizers say the evening festivities at the Hershey Lodge following Wolf's Jan. 20 inauguration will celebrate Pennsylvania's people, history and culture.

There will be a ballroom where guests can dance to music by performers including singer-songwriter Valerie Broussard, the Philadelphia band Dreamtime and violinist Damien Escobar and the Milton Hershey School String Ensemble.

In the "White Rose Lounge," inspired by Wolf's home county of York, guests can socialize and drink Pennsylvania beer or sip special inaugural cocktails.

Foods from across Pennsylvania will be served throughout the night, ranging from exotic fare like elk meatloaf on potato rolls to better-known items such as pierogies, kielbasa and soft pretzels.

Tickets are $100 or $50 for students and seniors.
